Three magazines recently included articles about projects that incorporated Silva Cells in their green infrastructure plans.
February’s issue of Landscape Architect and Specifier News had a feature article on the Smothers Park project in Owensboro, KY.
Smothers Park & Riverfront Crossing is a five acre project that is part of the Owensboro downtown revitalization effort. A central promenade with benches, plants, bike racks and paths will span St. Elizabeth Street to Davies Street. The park will also contain an outdoor children’s museum and playground. The Silva Cells are lining both sides of Veteran’s Boulevard, the gateway street through Smother’s Park, and are providing soil volume to a total of 52 trees.
And March’s issue of Landscape Architect and Specifier News had a nice feature article on the Doyle Hollis Park installation in Emerville, CA:
Finally, March’s issue of Architect magazine included a piece about the Energy Environment Experiential Learning (EEEL) Building at the University of Calgary in Alberta.
Unfortunately, only the Architect article is also available online (sad trombone).
